Stop skirting network security

With each new security epidemic, such as the recent Sasser worm, the debate over the effectiveness of current security technologies and practices are called into serious question.

Even though security is one of the biggest concerns for almost every organization the world over, the number of attacks increases year over year, with each one more devastating than the last. In recent years, major investments have been made to stem the tide of the attacks, but only a handful of companies have been truly successful in securing their networks.

Attacks, which are entirely preventable, continue to cripple corporations. Millions of dollars and thousands of hours are spent recovering from the latest threat. As organizations bet their businesses on the integrity and security of their network, they can no longer continue to live in a world where one attack can be catastrophic.
